Event description

Description

Colonnade Projects and Mansions of the Gilded Age invite you to a presentation on New York City antebellum history, society and architecture with a focus on the construction of La Grange Terrace (Colonnade Row).

Colonnade Row (1830) was one of the first buildings to receive protection under the Landmark Preservation Commission and is one of New York’s most beloved structures. The building holds rich significance in architecture, ancestry and New York’s early social structure.

"A glass of champagne and some fascinating New York history sitting in a magnificent room is a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon!" - Catherine P.

"I've always dreamed of seeing the inside of Colonnade Row and this was a perfect way to do it. I finally learned the secrets and history of not just the building but also the original first residents. I'll definitely go back for other lectures." - Charles W.

Michael W. Rayhill

Michael Rayhill is a New York based interior designer and historian. He has worked in the offices of Roman and Williams, Studio Sofield and Ralph Lauren. While attending Pratt Institute for interior design, he began research on the historic Colonnade Row off Lafayette Street. This project has since grown in range and scope to include a comprehensive contextualization of the neighborhood at its apex circa 1860, as well as a series of talks and lectures given in situ on the parlor floor of one of the Colonnade homes. Michael looks forward to future partnerships with fellow historians, architects and designers to further expand upon segments of New York’s historic past that have not been brought awareness.
